A hot melty mess of brie, cranberry compote and pecans all wrapped up in buttery layers of phyllo dough.
Preheat oven to 350ºF . In a large saucepan, combine cranberries, orange, 1 tablespoon of orange rind, sugar and water. Bring to a gentle boil and cook for ten minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
Lightly grease the center of a baking sheet where you are going to place your brie bundle. This will ensure that it doesn’t stick when removing it from the pan.
Unroll phyllo sheets and cover the stack with a towel as it dries out quickly. Take one sheet and lay it on the counter. Brush with melted butter. Repeat this process with six more sheets of dough.
Put the stack of dough sheets on the prepared pan. Place brie in the center of the stack of phyllo sheets. Scoop ¼ to ⅓ cup of cranberry compote on top of brie. Sprinkle pecans on top of cranberry compote.
Gently pull the phyllo layers up and around the brie as if wrapping a gift. Give the top a squeeze to secure it closed and trim any excess. You can fuss with the dough to fan it out to make it look more decorative.
Gently brush a little butter around the whole package. Bake in a 350ºF oven for 25 minutes. Serve while hot.
Make holiday entertaining special with this kicked-up version of a classic Brie en Croute.
